One of the biggest hits administered during the Kansas City Chiefs Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams wasn’t on a player, but rather a coach.

While the special teams units for each team were taking the field for Kansas City’s punt during the opening drive of the game, Rams tight end Roger Carter Jr. was putting his helmet on and making his way onto the field when he accidentally collided with Los Angeles head coach Sean McVay. Carter’s shoulder made contact with McVay’s head, ripped McVay’s headset off, and put him in visible pain on the sideline.

The Fox broadcast announced a few minutes later that McVay was checked on by the medical staff and cleared to resume his game day duties.

Twitter Reacts to McVay Being Blindsided

Twitter users reacted to McVay being blindsided by his own player.

“On one level, I would think that the coach would appreciate such determination… Yes… I am serious,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Sean was like this is what an NFL hit feels like, I’ll never again reprimand the defense,” another user wrote.

“Sean McVay will retire after this season and head to the broadcast booth. He knows the Rams future is not to bright and will want the Romo life. My guess is Fox,” another user wrote.

“Player daydreaming during the game not paying attention for when he needs to be in the game,” another user wrote. “So when he realizes he’s supposed to be in, rushes and disregards everything around him and ends up hurting the most important person on the sideline. Player’s a liability.”

“McVay needs to head to the tent for concussion protocols. At least put some ice on that,” another user wrote.

“Looks like it’s a guy they brought up from the practice squad. Nice way to impress the boss,” another user wrote.

“Jesus… I got concussion problems and if this happen to me.. Take me to my grave,” another user wrote.

Chiefs Win Handily at Home

The Chiefs improved to 9-2 on the season with a 26-10 win over the Rams in Week 12.

On offense, quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 27-of-42 pass attempts for 320 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. The leading receiver for Kansas City was tight end Travis Kelce, who caught 4 passes on 8 targets for 57 yards, which included a 39-yard touchdown catch in the first half.

The leading rusher for the Chiefs was rookie running back Isiah Pacheco, who carried the ball 22 times for 69 yards and 1 touchdown.

Second-year linebacker Nick Bolton led the way on defense with 11 tackles and an interception via a tipped pass late in the fourth quarter. Week 12 marked the second consecutive week in which Bolton recorded a fourth-quarter interception. Cornerback L’Jarius Sneed recorded the defense’s first interception of the day, which came earlier in the fourth quarter.

The Chiefs are on a five-game win streak after defeating the Rams. They continue to lead the AFC West ahead of the Los Angeles Chargers (6-5), Las Vegas Raiders (4-7), and Denver Broncos (3-8).
